In a city that is so famous for its grandiose architecture and museums, in particular the Hermitage, it’s only natural to assume that there isn’t much point in getting a hire car, and that is exactly what we suggest.
- Car hire not advised.
Do you need a car in St Petersburg? Even for heading out of the city of St Petersburg, for example to visit the Catherine Palace, then guided bus tours are readily available, whilst independently minded travellers can also take advantage of the cheap and plentiful local trains.
Verdict – no.
